Baseball Betting Lines at Get That Bet – Can Abreu Give Danks Some Support vs. Dodgers?

When Josh Beckett of the Los Angeles Dodgers went out for his last start, you just knew that manager Don Mattingly was going to keep a very close eye on him. After all, Beckett have thrown a lot of pitches in his last start, 128 of them, to be exact, and Mattingly had kept him out there only because Beckett had a no-hitter. But baseball bettors know that you don’t want to overwork a starting pitcher, especially one who’s trying to make a comeback off an injury. So Beckett threw only 88 pitches against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday, and that just happened to be another home loss to Dodgers suffered at the hands of a team that had not done a very good job figuring out how to win on the road.

After losing three out of four games to Pittsburgh, the Dodgers have split their first two games with the Chicago White Sox, and on Wednesday night they will face a pitcher who has not been getting a lot of run support lately.

Beckett opposes John Danks (3-5, 4.66 ERA), for whom the White Sox have scored just six runs over his last four starts. That simply isn’t fair, especially when a guy is allowed only two earned runs in his last 15 innings. We’ll see if Chicago comes to his aid to a greater degree in this game that begins at Dodger Stadium at 10:10 PM Eastern time.

In the baseball betting lines that have been established at Get That Bet USA Mobile Sportsbook, the Dodgers are the team laying a price:

Los Angeles Dodgers (Beckett – R) -200
Chicago White Sox (Danks – L) +170

Under 7.5 Runs -120
Over 7.5 Runs +100

Opposing hitters are batting less than .200 against Beckett at home, so he is someone who not only will likely come in relatively fresh, but also one who is completely comfortable within the dimensions of Dodger Stadium. It would be a nice thing, though, if Los Angeles could offer its pitchers some offensive support. Last night there was another frustrating defeat, by 4-1 margin, as the Dodgers dropped to 31-29 on the season. They are tied with the Miami Marlins in the wild-card race in the National League. However, they are also seven games behind the San Francisco Giants in the NL West, and that is not where they want to be, or where Get That Bet patrons probably expected them to be at this particular juncture.

Baseball bettors can expect a couple of Cuban sluggers to be in the spotlight for this game, and they deserve it.Jose Abreu has come off the disabled list to hit a pair of two-run home runs, one in each game against the Dodgers. Currently he is second in the American League in slugging, third in homers and sixth in runs batted in. That’s after having served fifteen days on the DL. Yasiel Puig has reached base safely in 35 consecutive games, recording an on-base percentage of .481 during that time. If either of tonight’s pitchers is going to claim non-support, it won’t likely be due to the absence of effort by either of these individuals.
